Rapid Recovery Expansion

Federal funding through the CARES Act has enabled the temporary expansion of Next Level Jobs as part of the Rapid Recovery for a Better Future initiative. This expansion adds temporary training programs and extends eligibility to Hoosiers who have an existing two- or four-year degree.

The Rapid Recovery expansion expires December 30, 2020—time is running out! All training programs expiring soon are specified as a “Rapid Recovery Program Enhancement.” For more information contact a Next Level Jobs team member at questions@nextleveljobs.org.

What Is Next Level Jobs?

Next Level Jobs provides free training for Hoosiers and reimbursements for Indiana employers for training employees in high-demand fields.

Next Level Jobs is part of Governor Holcomb’s Next Level Indiana agenda to continue the positive momentum of our state. Under his leadership, with support from the General Assembly, Indiana is taking the state’s workforce to the next level with a focus on the high-priority industries and in-demand, high-paying jobs driving Indiana’s 21st Century economy forward.

Vision For Next Level Jobs

Two million Hoosiers need additional training to compete in the 21st Century workforce, and there will be over 1 million job openings in Indiana due to retirements and the creation of new jobs by 2025. Whether you’re a Hoosier looking for a better-paying job or an employer looking for a better-skilled workforce, Indiana’s Next Level Jobs initiative can help.

How Next Level Jobs Serves Job Seekers

Next Level Jobs provides Hoosiers with free training in high-growth, in-demand job fields. The Workforce Ready Grant pays for Hoosiers to earn a high-value certificate in one of Indiana’s high-growth job fields, tuition free.

How Next Level Jobs Serves Employers

Next Level Jobs provides employers with reimbursements for training their employees through the Employer Training Grant. The Employer Training Grant will reimburse an employer for up to $5,000 per trained employee who is trained, hired, and retained for six months, up to $50,000 per employer.
